Under $100: BCBGeneration Tinas Gloss Pump
Tuesday, December 21, 2010 • Permalink •
These BCBGeneration Tinas Pumps caught my eye because of the totally unique color and texture combination. The super affordable price is a great motivator for trying out this creative shoe.
The cream color and finish are described by BCBGeneration as "Dark Cream Gloss Cut Snake". From what I can tell, that means a semi-gloss patent leather, with a snake pattern that is cut into (rather than merely embossed into) the leather. The result is a ton of texture and a finish that is shinier than plain leather, but less glossy than patent leather. Actually, the cut leather reminds me a lot of my favorite pair of Calvin Klein Collection textured leather pumps, which cost about 7 times as much as these BCBGeneration pumps. Hmph.
